Integrative Psychotherapist, Psychotherapy Plus
(Harley St, Kew Gardens and Online)
Gemma takes the ‘integrative’ aspect of psychotherapy to its limit. In her early thirties, she was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis and had, what you might call, a depressive disposition. Her personal experience of permanently reversing both conditions through nutrition fuelled her passion and deep understanding of how an optimal diet contributes to both physical and psychological health.
She therefore combines her more traditional counselling approaches (CBT, Person-Centred, Psychodynamic and beyond) with a formal training in evidence-based nutrition. Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy sessions are also available for a range of presenting issues including facilitating the transition to a plant-based way of eating.
Therapy takes place one to one or in couples via various online mediums; socially distanced walk and talk (Richmond Riverside); or, as a four-hour invigorating kick-start in beautiful Kew Gardens.
A complimentary, remote consultation allows potential clients to explore how her blended therapeutic practice could support them in their recovery.
